Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

2.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

3.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

4.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

5.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

6.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

7.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

8.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

10.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

11.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

12.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

13.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

14.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

15.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

16.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

17.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

18.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

19.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

20.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

21.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

22.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

23.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

24.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

25.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

26.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

27.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

28.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

29.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

30.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

31.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

32.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

33.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

34.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

35.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

36.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

37.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

38.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

39.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

40.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

41.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

42.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

43.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

44.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

45.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

46.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

47.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

48.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

49.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

50.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine
